I wish! This weekend is a very busy one for my kids, specifically my son. I wish you both the best, though. I'll be following the coverage. Which speakers are you bringing (if any)?

Brandon! It's so good to hear from you again. The kids must be in college by now.

Let me put my voice in with others and say that I hope all is going well for you and yours. And yeah....stick around for a bit. We'll share war stories or some such.....

He wanted separate cabinets for the woofer section and the midrange/tweeter section. He wanted textured copper on the front baffles and had a sheet of raw textured copper sent to us. He specified everything down to the outriggers, feet, binding posts, etc.

While it may look simple, this was probably one of the most complicated builds we had ever done. Working with the copper was very tricky, so we had to work slow.

Here are the results...



Here's a side shot...



And a shot from the rear...



On Friday (Halloween), Pete and Brenda showed up with cases Pete had built for the tops, bottoms and outriggers - each appropriately sized and labeled.

While this pair required a lot of extra labor and we wouldn't necessarily want to duplicate again, it was fun to see if we could turn Pete's dream into reality.

Happy listening (name withheld upon request)...

Thanks for the kudos Jim. Great job by the team! The speakers are being fed the best I can do right now and are amazing.

I would really like to attend the Axpona Show! Chicago is just a short ways down 94.
This Show might be my best opportunity to hear Salk speakers for the first time.

Jeff, you should go. The small rooms are not great, but at lower levels you can quickly decide which tickles your fancy more. I'm in Kzoo now so only a 2.5 hour drive for me. I'm going Friday AM.

Chicago is getting bigger every year.
